It is time to show what is growing here in Florida this time of year, which is our May flowers. We are nearing the end of our dry season, but have a bit longer to go. Many of Mom's plants took a hit from this year's cold winter, but others are blooming nicely. I will admit that I will hear plant names and totally forget them minutes later. Most of these plants are in pots, which Mom can move around when desired.I will post the pictures and add comments only when I know something. Hope you enjoy.
Beggar the cat - the beast of the back yard. when taking pictures, he is either too close or looking the wrong way
Scar Face or Tom, depending on our mood. He adopted mom and comes around to eat most days. He is a sweety but often gets into fights, hence his name.
A look at part of the back yard - the area i do my wood working also
I loved the contrast of the light leaflets and the dark moss.
Figs - What you get when you cross a frog and a pig....
These are out front. I have one on my porch and it tells me when to water all my other plants
desert rose flowers
Curly tail lizard - each of those squares is a foot across to show the scale of these lizards at their largest.

these have a strange shape to them
This bud is for you.
I love the overlap of the petals

A shrimp plant I gave my mom for Mother's day years ago. Never blooms on Mother's day after I got it home.
Looks almost like they are wearing scale armor
These are always interesting leaves
a tree Mom got from the county. Won't grow fast while kept in a pot
Found this one accidentally
I love this mixture of tiny flowers and colorful leaves
Close up of the spotted leaves.
That is it for now. Will wait for changes in the plants and flowers before I display them here agian.
